Deco Art Makeover

Hello ......I have made over a pine dressing table mirror. I have had this years ever since pine was all the go. I am making over the entire bedroom suite as it is all pine and perfect condition....
So I thought I would show the mirror.

I have the lovely people over at Deco Art and the Blogger Outreach Program  to thank for the materials.



This is what I started with

I simply gave this a good wash and once dry gave it two coats of Chalky Finish Everlasting,I could have got away with one coat .

I then stencilled all around the edges using Old French Script stencil and Chalky Finish paint  Everlasting


Once this was all dry I sanded it down to distress the edges and where I thought the paint would wear naturally. I then applied the Creme wax and once dry buffed it up with a soft cloth This protects the paint finish.

The pots were decorated by gluing some string around them and painting with more of the Chalky Finish New Life
I just added some roses and twine bows to finish and added candles to the pots.xxx
